An improvisation: watercress, "crunchy sprouts," and grape tomatoes, gotten at Union Market.
A couple of halibut fillets (purchased at Fish Tales, mais bien sur), marinating in olive oil (Frankie's Spuntino, duh!), lemon juice, dried basil, some minced garlic, salt and pepper. A James Beard preparation, I think.
...pan sear those puppies a bit...
...et voila, the delectable finished dish.
As for viewing, well, I had ambitions to finally introduce MLW to Clouzot's Diabolique, but we wound up watching a goofy Law and Order SVU and Saturday Night Live instead; the latter was pretty delightful, with the real Lindsay Buckingham standing next to Mr. Hader's impersonation of him being an especial highlight. I should also note that as trying as I often find Union Market, I am charmed by its habit of playing vintage Blue Note stuff on its sound system, and hearing Herbie's "Survival of the Fittest" while scouring the produce section inspired me to put on Maiden Voyage for the first time in a long time when I got home.
